Quote:I can confirm the 494 will not work on EQ mounts. It will work on a fork mount in EQ mode
Quote:however these little alt-az mounts don't work too well in EQ mode.Or maybe it's just me.. I tried to use my ETX-60 in polar mode at 14* latitude.. clutches couldn't handle it.
Quote: I added a 497 controller for not too much via eBay.
Quote:Re: milapse - my understanding was that the only way to go about it without a clamp is to use PC connection which is available with 497 only. To me it sounds not very practical, I'd rather use a low-tech clamp as opposed to lagging a laptop.
